Eye On Sports with Eric Williams:
BEST OF MAXIM
You MUST read this article by Holly MacKenzie of Ball Don't Lie. MacKenzie provides fantastic insight into Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and the dynamics of Celtics lockerroom, courtesy of Keyon Dooling.
Here's what Dooling said about the perception of Rajon Rondo's grumpy personality:
"It's funny because there were a lot of people who didn't necessarily...
BOSTON -- It was less than two hours until tipoff in a pivotal inter-division showdown with the Hawks, and Rajon Rondo was not there to make friends. The Celtics point guard swayed idly in a chair in the center of the locker room, intently watching video of that night's opponent on one of two large TV screens. If anything about the midseason drama that surrounded Rondo or the...
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo sat out Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic with a back injury.
Rondo was hurt in Tuesday's loss to the New York Knicks when he crashed hard to the floor.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Rondo would likely sit out Friday's game against Atlanta as well.
Rondo has a streak of 23 consecutive games with double-digit assists after...
After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value.
Rajon Rondo: 13 points and 13 assists for Rondo, mostly before he got knocked down and nearly got broken in half. After that, he played like a guy whose back was a mess. He probably shouldn't have been out there, but he was. Admirable, yes...
In Magic Johnson's "Magic 8 Ball" TV segment, the ESPN crew discussed whether Rajon Rondo is currently the best point guard in the NBA this season.
Said Jon Barry: "With all due respect to Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, Darren Williams, Steve Nash, the whole list, Rondo is the best point guard in the NBA this season." Magic Johnson concurred, and compared...
Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: A clearer playoff picture starting to emerge in the East
The season ends in 10 days, and only now are we finally starting to see things snap into focus in the NBA playoff picture. Most teams have five or six games left on the docket, so in the East, the top four seeds are almost...
Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and Mickael Pietrus will all miss tonight’s game against the Orlando Magic, according to Doc Rivers. I’m currently covering the game from the TD Garden for CLNS Radio, so go check out my injury story there.The biggest takeaway is that Rondo and Pietrus’ injuries don’t seem to concern Rivers (though they could both miss Friday’s contest with the...
I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Charlotte.
Rondo makes everything so much easier for his teammates; he carved up the Charlotte interior defense to the tune of 16 assists (if his 20 points weren't enough for you). Many of those assists...
Kevin Garnett has been as responsible for this Celtics resurgence as anyone, so this is quite fitting. Rondo's been getting a lot of attention lately, and rightfully so, for his gaudy assist numbers... but are the Celtics in this position without Kevin Garnett as well?
KG has been named the Eastern Conference Player of the week. Here's a look at his week.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Rajon Rondo had 20 points and 16 assists to help the Boston Celtics beat the Charlotte Bobcats 94-82 Sunday night despite playing without three of their star players.
Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen were given the night off to rest and did not make the trip to Charlotte, N.C. to face the NBA-worst Bobcats. But the Celtics won anyway as Aaron Bradley...
As an explosive point guard who loves to slash toward the rim, Derrick Rose tends to take quite a beating. Hard fouls against guys like Rose, Rajon Rondo, and Chris Paul are a common occurrence. However, Rose believes there are players in the league who have been playing too rough with him, and after Charlie Villanueva left the bridge of his nose bloody with a flagrant foul on Sunday...

No Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, or Michael Pietrus. No problem. Paul Pierce and Avery Bradley led the Celtics to a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic to clinch their fifth straight Atlantic Division title. Pierce scored four of his game-high 29 points in the final 7.6 seconds to clinch the win. Pierce also dished out a career-high 14 assists.
Pierce got most of the postgame attention....
Tune into FOX Sports Florida at 7:30 p.m. to watch the Orlando Magic take on the Boston Celtics. NBA Magic territory.
There's a reasonable chance the Orlando Magic and Boston Celtics could find themselves matched up in the first round of the playoffs. Based on the teams' recent history, that's a series Orlando probably wants no part of.
Perhaps the Magic's two...
